Check it out!

WOW!!! Time sure does fly here at the end of the school year! Five kids with awards ceremonies, field trips, class parties, grade level programs, athletic banquets...the list goes on and on! I have been so busy, I have not had time to even sleep more than 4 hours a night! If only we could add hours to a day! Well...then we would still do more...**sigh**.


Ok...so I got my Simply Obsessed kit on Monday, and with all of the end of the school year activities going on, I was not able to break it open until Tuesday night. When I did....all I could say was WOW. Yes....WOW. Heather did a fantastic job of pairing the embellishments with the Bella papers! This kit is FANTASTIC!

It's no secret that I do not do many masculine layouts or projects...which does not make sense because I have a HOUSE FULL of guys! I am more typically drawn to the frilly side of life...and again, I find that in my layouts with a typically masculine kit! Somehow, I always find a way to make it girly! LOL

Here is "You Gotta Dance" featuring my youngest when she was only a baby. I altered the photo to add in the bubbles, and I used the patterned paper that was in the kit to my advntage...and I pop dotted some of the circles up to look like the bubbles have come out of the photo and onto the page. I made a couple of pinwheels and added the buttons from the kit for the centers. I also used the fabric flowers from the kit to help create a whimsical look to this layout.


I did this using the music prompt from Scrapping The Music and the GDT contest sketch from Sketchy Thursdays...such fun!! Here is a close up:


This is my son...shaving for the first time ever. He actually used my hubby's electric trimmer instead of a razor. I created my left border to represent the stubble...then the right border is clean. I created the "stubble" by fringing the paper then using a toothpick to wrap the ends around and curl it up.


Here is my Fathers' Day card...as folded button down collared shirt! I wanted something a little different...and this is what was the result. the white part is an insert that you can create your message on...pulls out easily. When pulled out....


This is what you get. I put the chipboard sticker on the inside of the shirt for the "tag"...and a little hidden surprise for Dad when he pulls out the insert!


Do you like what you see?? Head on over to Simply Obsessed and pick up your own kit today! You will be glad you did!!
